Make a Wish

Hello, Friends.  I am amazed on how fast Monday rolls around each week.  I must be having lots of fun.  The saying is, "Time flies when you are having fun".   I am happy that our time switched to daylight savings time.  I like the extra hour of daylight and especially now that the temps are getting warmer.  Maybe I will get in a walk in the evening or visit with the neighbors a little.  Haven't seen much of them over the winter.

I am going to share a couple of cards that I made using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Make a Wish set.  

My first card is a Pop Up that folds flat for mailing.  I was going to give you the dimensions of the card, but I am in the process of re-organizing my craft room and I cannot find the paper I wrote the measurements on, not to mention I boxed up some adhesives and I have no idea where that box got to.  I probably will not know where anything is for quite a while.    I stamped this cute image on white card stock and colored it with Copic Markers.  I used my Heidi Pettie cloud stencil and distress inks to make the clouds.  The colors of the clouds remind me of the sky sometimes after a rain storm and it has green color.    I used some older dotted paper from Stampin' Up and I think the flower paper is was Daisy D and I do not know that Daisy's is still in business.  I had saved this paper forever and I thought it went well with this sweet image.

The second card was designed using a Dienamics Blue Print 18 die set.   The paper was some 12 in sheets that I cut into quarters.  I am not sure of the brand of paper it was.  I stamped the image on white card stock and colored it with Copic Makers.  The clouds were made with the cloud stencil, mentioned above, and SU tempting turquoise ink.    The sentiment is part of the Make A Wish stamp set and I stamped it using black ink on a banner die.  I punched a small star and placed it on the banner to give it some added interest.

Thank you, so much, for stopping in today.  It is always fun to see you have visited and to read your sweet comments.   Have a wonderful week.

  1. These are so adorable! And so different, equally gorgeous!

  2. Love the bright and cheerful pop up card in yellow and green - so springlike and happy - like you are with the daylight savings time extra hour! Your second card with the "Make a wish" sentiment is perfect for a birthday - the colors on this are like a "welcome to Spring" greeting too! Two thumbs up for these, Shirley, and happy that you may soon get to walk and see neighbors!

    I lost a pair of scissors for 11 months lol. Then when I'd forgotten all about them? They popped back up. Hope you find your adhesives sooner.
